My shrimp and grits were very good , not the best I've had but near the top. My wife loved her brownie sundae.. Made from scratch This place has a... More

Went for dinner and sat out on the patio. Easy street parking and right off the highway. Seven people in our party all tried something different with no complaints. Finished off with a yummy milkshake. Definitely worth stopping over.

Was looking for a great place to get some ice cream while in Charlotte and this place popped up. Turns out it's also where they shot part of the movie "Shallow Hal". I got an oreo milkshake and it was great. Even better, sat out on the patio and enjoyed the great weather. It's right next to the light rail... More

We went for the Sunday brunch. I was highly impressed with the quality of the food. So many times on buffets you'll find Frankenfood compiled from mixes and flavorings. This food was made from scratch, including the delicious applesauce. The sweet potato casserole, broccoli casserole, and biscuits and gravy were especially good. My usually picky child ate more than she... More

Excellent meal here. The brunch buffet features a nice mix of foods, for both breakfast and lunch. It was satisfying and fun to be there. I would definitely recommend this place.

This place was just what was needed. Great spread of breakfast foods along with some lunch staples to settle a stomach after a late night. Everything from the eggs and sausage to lasagna were great. The restaurant overall has a great culture of its own, close to downtown and the airport.

Driving in from Asheville on way to the airport and in need of a quick lunch. Found this place by accident when another recommended place (Luna's Living Kitchen) was closed. Sunday lunch at Pike's and the place wasn't even full. I don't understand. My wife tried the breakfast buffet, and I had the lunch buffet. Both were great, even if... More

A friend took me here because she knows how much I like truly unique and outstanding restaurants..I was more than impressed! I finally decided on the turkey and stuffing with mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce. Why this menu choice when there are so many more that are more unique to Pike's? Because that is my favorite meal at Thanksgiving... More

Pike's is good no matter when you go. It's old school and it has a great southern personality to it. It is affordable with DELICIOUS options. The Sunday brunch is great, and so is their southern fried pecan chicken. The handmade milkshakes and drinks are obviously great. A definite recommended place.
